What are NBER Working Papers?

Hard Copy Subscriptions
INCLUDE FREE ONLINE ACCESS for everyone at your organization. Subscribers also receive, by mail in hard copy, the full NBER Working Paper Series of approximately 1,000 papers published each year. Subscriptions are free to Corporate Associates. Anyone interested in becoming a Corporate Associate should contact Denis Healy.  For others within the United States, the standard rate for a full hard copy subscription is $9,000 or academic libraries and faculty members, $7,200 Partial subscriptions, delineated by program, are also available. Effective January 1, 2015, a five-tier pricing structure for partial subscriptions, based on the average number of working papers distributed by each program in recent years, replaces the more varied set of partial subscription prices that prevailed in past years. This structure reduces the subscription cost for many partial subscribers, although for some, there will be price increases. In most cases, these increases more closely harmonize the average cost per paper across different partial subscriptions. We appreciate our readers' understanding of this pricing re-alignment.

Online Access and Online-Only Subscriptions
Hard copy, as well as online-only subscriptions, allow electronic access for everyone at an organization. No licensing agreements are required. The full text of Working Papers are now available on the NBER Web site even before hard copy papers leave the mailing house. Pricing details on online-only subscriptions are listed below.
